So much for those breakup rumors. Rihanna is celebrating her 25th birthday this week by escaping to Hawaii with Chris Brown by her side. The birthday girl posted a photo to Instagram of her smiling self perched on Brown’s lap in the back of a limo. They were also spotted seaside in Honolulu, according to E! News. “Chris was leading Rihanna by the hand,” a source says of their brief beach walk. “She was puffing on something as she walked and seemed very relaxed and happy. Her hair was blowing and she twirled around. She looked totally free and like she was really enjoying her birthday. Chris was protective and made sure to hold her hand as they walked.”

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly in hot water with a stylist after returning a borrowed $1,750 dress in tatters and with half of its length torn off, according to Us Weekly. Lohan “said that the dress had ripped [at a club after the fundraiser]. She couldn’t possibly wear it like that, so her stylist friend when to the club bouncer and requested some scissors to repair the torn parts of the dress. But what bouncer has scissors?” a source recounts. “She turned [the dress] into a mullet! She’s out of control and behaving really badly.” For those keeping track, this is the same dress that Charlie Sheen offered to help Lohan pay for before the fundraiser, but Lohan declined, deciding to simply borrow the dress instead. Imagine how she might have treated it if it has actually been purchased.

Shia LeBeouf has exited what would have been his Broadway debut — in a revival of “Orphans” alongside Alec Baldwin — less than a month before previews were to begin, but there’s been plenty of drama since he quit. LaBeouf, who is rather new to Twitter, decided to use the social-networking site to publish emails between himself, Baldwin, director Daniel Sullivan and co-star Tom Sturridge that all suggest some sort of squabble between LeBeouf and Baldwin that precipitated his exit. “I’m too old for disagreeable situations,” Sullivan writes in an email to LeBeouf. “You’re one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. You are who you are. You two are incompatible. I should have known it. This one will haunt me. You tried to warn me. You said you were a different breed. I didn’t get it.”

Denzel Washington is not one for Hollywood schmoozing. “Even within the industry, I don’t have any actor friends. My friends are my old friends,” the Oscar nominee tells the Guardian. Sure, but why doesn’t he make any new friends, considering how often he co-stars with new people in movies? “Because I don’t make friends!” he insists. “Maybe I’m not a butt-kisser. Maybe I’m not a schmoozer. I’m not about to go to a party to try to get a job. I don’t want movie star friends. And being African-American, there were no big movie stars to hang out with anyway, not when I was starting out. They were just the third guy from the back. For whatever reason, I never befriended any white actors.” Washington’s rep later clarified the report, saying Washington followed up that statement with a few exceptions, including Tom Hanks, Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts.

Matthew Broderick put the brakes on a recent performance of his Broadway show, “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” when he spotted an audience member taking a video of the show, according to E! News. A rep for the production confirms that Broderick, upon noticing the filming, called a stop to the action and addressed the videographer in question, asking him politely if he would refrain from doing that.
